Will marijuana cause gynecomastia 8 months post-surgery?

Hello, i am wondering if i smoked marijuana it'll cause my gyno to come back, and i was wondering if omega-3 is recommended to use everyday to increase testosterone level and avoid hormonal imbalance while smoking marijuana, although, the marijuana use will not be permanent, i was thinking to travel for a month in Amsterdam since it's legal and smoke up with a friend of mine, so im just wondering if that'll increase the risk of getting gyno back or not

Marijuana and gynecomastia

A gynecomastia operation will likely leave small areas of breast tissue behind. We intentionally leave some breast tissue under the areola to present a depression. Therefore, smoking marijuana has a definite potential to stimulate the growth of these areas of breast tissue. This is something you must consider if you continue to smoke pot.
